Quick! What's the only sport indigenous to Colorado? That's right: pack-burro racing, in which competitors lead (not ride) their burro
companions along mountainous paths. The pace of individual competitors can range from a flat-out run to a stand-still (stubborn as a __),
but it's certainly a physically demanding competition in high altitude.
